United & Proud: Colors with Meaning, celebrates the colors of the rainbow flag. FUN FACT: The original rainbow flag was conceived with 8 stripes. It was created in 1977 by Gilbert Baker, an artist, activist, and openly gay military veteran. Tasked by Harvey Milk, a historic figure in the fight for LGBTQ rights, to create a flag for the queer community. Each color in the flag was assigned a specific meaning – HOT PINK: Sex | RED: Life | ORANGE: Healing | YELLOW: Sunlight | GREEN: Nature | TURQUOISE: Magic | BLUE: Serenity | PURPLE: Spirit

Submitted artwork SHOULD feature one predominant color from the original 8 PRIDE colors listed above. We do not want to see ALL of the rainbow colors in one piece.
